...Bad Year formed in 2019 and calls Milwaukee home. Inspired by heartbreak, angst, and self-reformation, Bad Year injects the scene with anthemic chorus hooks and brutal optimism. In the spirit of promoting positive aspects of empathy and mental health, their cathartic melodies are known for freely inspiring listeners with a sense of mutual understanding and hope. The group put a fresh, more decorated feel on musical incarnations and lived experiences of the past.
Bad Year's groundbreaking debut EP "Handshakes'' received immediate acclaim from listeners and an unmediated Wisconsin Area Music Industry (WAMI) Award nomination while the title track's music video gained over 100k views within its first month.

What makes our band stand out amongst others? We're the only band that's resurrecting a lost art. Pop-Punk has returned on the back of a STALLION named Doubter. If we're not allowed to finish our work, this music will be lost to the withering passage of time; scattered by forces of entropy as our world is destroyed and made new. To us this is music, but to some distant relative of mankind, it will be understood as the idea upon which society rests.
This idea...is Doubter.
Live with us
Laugh with us
Love with us
LEARN with us
and escape the shackling concept of what you THINK music is.
There's only one sure thing in this crazy mixed up world we're living in.... and that's Doubter.
The q is silent.
Hailing from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, tiqmmy combine their influences from emo, pop-punk, hip-hop, and alt-rock to make genre blended songs full of honest lyrics and personal songwriting.
The Keystones are an alternative rock group based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Born in Waukesha, the very same place as the electric guitar, the members of this 3-piece outfit pay homage to the biggest names in 2000s modern rock -- Arctic Monkeys, The Killers, The Strokes, Wallows and Catfish and the Bottlemen -- all while carving out a distinct, indie-alternative stadium sound that brings something entirely new to the genre. With a blend of Brit-indie-grunge and new-age alternative tracks, the band is prepared to do more than just play shows that put audiences on their feet -- they want to make the town that created the guitar as we know it proud.
